Singing The Blues
5 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Lynn's Blues" is more of a melodrama than the usual film noir/crime story. Oh, there are villains and there is a brief shootout at the end, which is par for the course, but most of the episode is Pete listening to this woman whine about her troubles and later even try to kill herself.

That woman - who is pretty and has an amazing figure, by the way - is "Lynn Martel" (Linda Lawson, in only her second appearance as an actress on TV) and she's a fellow singer and friend of Pete's girl "Edie." When Edie notices something wrong with Lynn and tires unsuccessfully to find out, she asks Pete if he'll try. So Pete goes over to the another bar, listens to her sing, and knocks on her dressing room door. Pete should have said, "no thanks" after that first meeting with the girl but he perseveres and he was lucky it didn't cost him his life as the girl is involved with tough gangsters.

Overall, not one of the more tense episodes so far in this excellent program, but it did have some cool shots in an elevator. It's also kind of neat that both Edie(Lola Albright) and Linda aren't lip-syncing; they were/are both singers.
